LEND ME A TENOR THE MUSICAL, the new musical comedy by Peter Sham and Brad Carroll, based on Ken Ludwig's award-winning play, which opened at the Gielgud Theatre earlier this summer to some rave reviews, is to close. The production's last performance will be Saturday 6 August.

Producers Martin Platt and David Elliott said, "We wish to thank the extremely dedicated cast of LEND ME A TENOR THE MUSICAL, author Peter Sham and composer Brad Carroll and everyone who has taken part in the project.

Despite mostly wonderful notices from the press, great feedback from our audiences and nightly standing ovations, this has not translated into growing sales and we feel it is in everyone's best interests to close the production on August 6th."

Lend Me A Tenor The Musical stars Matthew Kelly as ‘Henry Saunders', Joanna Riding as ‘Maria Merelli', Damian Humbley as ‘Max', Michael Matus as ‘Tito Merelli, Sophie-Louise Dann as ‘Diana Divane', Cassidy Janson as ‘Maggie Saunders', and Gay Soper, Jane Quinn and Michelle Bishop as the ‘Ladies of the Opera Guild'. The production is directed by Olivier award-winning director Ian Talbot and choreographed by Tony-nominated choreographer Randy Skinner. The production is designed by Paul Farnsworth, with lighting by Tim Mitchell, and sound by Terry Jardine and Nick Lidster. The Musical Supervisor is Tony Award Winner Paul Gemignani, the Musical Director is Colin Billing, and orchestrations are by Chris Walker.

LEND ME A TENOR THE MUSICAL is produced by Martin Platt and David Elliott and Eileen & Allen Anes with Jason E. Grossman and M. Kilburg Reedy.
